I just read your post and couldn’t help but reply. I think it’s your special day so you should do what you want. We’d all love to invite everyone but if people know you and care about you, they should understand your circumstances. 

I’d probably just have a small ceremony with close family and friends. The rest will hopefully understand. 

Good luck! I hope everything will work out well for you guys :).

nothing wrong with eloping.  I’m seriously getting to the F%#$ it stage of this whole thing and just want it over and wished I’d gone with my first plan which was to elope.   Eloping isn’t something everyone will like… you have to stand by your guns if you do this route.

NYMeetsPA:  You cannot be a “bad bride” by doing what you want!!!  If you and your FI want to elope, then for you, that is what a “good bride” does!

There is no such thing as a bad bride here! Do what feels right. It’s your Marriage, not everyone elses. Just elope and then throw a party to share your big news with everyone. It will cheaper and still a ton of fun!
